Elzybells challenge

Hi everyone. Today's another Elzybells challenge! This time it's a color challenge - to make a black and white card with a splash of color. I was sooo inspired by yesterday's SCS sketch challenge, I used it for this challenge too. My splash of color is Rose Red.
So come play with us! Do the challenge and email your picture to Elizabeth! You can see more wonderful black and white creations from my fellow Elzybelles HERE. My card uses the flower image Curly Daisies. Love the whimsical feel to this stamp!! I colored them with my blender pen and ink smooshed in the ink pad lid and then dragged each edge in the ink pad for a sharper edge (rather than a sponge). There are tiny light green bling in the centers of each (ok, I MAY have streeeetttched the rules a titch!) which are from Kaiser Scrapbook. I get mine at my local LSS, but Flourishes carries some as well. I love these gems! They come with several sizes to each pack, so you have options. The DP is from my friend Lee (LuvLee) I don't know what it is, but it's really nice. Has a nice texture to it. The striped organdy ribbon and black burlap string are from Pinkhedgehog Paper crafts!

I will back shortly with a slew of challenge cards I have made through out the week!!

P.S. Do you like the new look of my blog? I had Beth from Freckled and Fun design my banner and new siggy!! Yippeeee!!!
